When an account is created, it's folder is given the name that's chosen for the account. If you rename the account, the folder name will not change (FYI - this causes a lot of problems with workgroup access). You'll likely find his stuff under a different folder name (such as HP_Administrator, Owner, HP_Owner, etc). Browse around a bit (with your friend available) to locate his stuff. Don't forget to check the All Users account for stuff that's "Shared" (although this shouldn't be his account).
Further FYI - when Windows creates an account, it melds the stuff in the All Users account and the Default User account to create the new account (so, in effect you're using 2 accounts with 2 desktops, etc).
All this being said, here's a link on how to migrate stuff from the corrupted profile to the new profile: http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=811151
